The aim of the present study was to evaluate if the combination of heat and moisture exchanger with air forced warming blankets or warming intravenous fluids prevents intraoperative hypothermia in obese and non obese women under target controlled infusion-total intravenous anaesthesia (TCI-TIVA) during lower abdominal surgery.

The purpose of this research project is to ascertain the effectiveness of plastic head covering in prevention of hypothermia. Hypothermia is defined by body temperature
Perioperative hypothermia is a common problem in today´s surgical and anesthesiological patient care and is associated with many adverse events. The intention of this study was to evaluat...
The study is designed as a pilot, open-label study to investigate the feasibility and safety of selective cerebral hypothermia in OHCA patients receiving ECPR.
Mild therapeutic hypothermia in the temperature range of 32º - 34ºC. improves survival in patients recovered from a ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest. The same therapy is suggested...
Recent clinical studies have shown that systemic therapeutic hypothermia improving the outcomes in patients with ST segment elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) received primary percutan...
Deep hypothermia for the operative correction of congenital cardiac lesions protects hypoperfused organs, mostly because of its effect on lowering metabolic demand and oxygen requirement. Deleterious ...
Accidental hypothermia (AH) has higher incidence and mortality in geriatric populations. Japan has a rapidly ageing population, and little is known about the epidemiology of hypothermia in this countr...
Mild hypothermia (32°C) is routinely used in medical practice to alleviate hypoxic ischemic damage, however, the mechanisms that underlie its protective effects remain uncertain. Using a systems appr...
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious health care problem on both individual and public health levels. As a major cause of death and disability in the United States, it is associated with a signif...
Neonatal hypothermia is widely associated with increased risks of morbidity and mortality, but remains a pervasive global problem. No studies have examined the impact of hypothermia on outcomes for pr...
Abnormally low BODY TEMPERATURE that is intentionally induced in warm-blooded animals by artificial means. In humans, mild or moderate hypothermia has been used to reduce tissue damages, particularly after cardiac or spinal cord injuries and during subsequent surgeries.
Application of heat to correct hypothermia, accidental or induced.
Lower than normal body temperature, especially in warm-blooded animals; in man usually accidental or unintentional.
A method of lowering core BODY TEMPERATURE by filling the STOMACH with chilled fluids.
Reduction of blood viscosity usually by the addition of cell free solutions. Used clinically (1) in states of impaired microcirculation, (2) for replacement of intraoperative blood loss without homologous blood transfusion, and (3) in cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermia.
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
